New Demo - Mick Flaherty
Our latest demo comes from Liverpool's Mick Flaherty, a singer-songwriter who draws on an eclectic range of influences, combining melodic guitar arpeggios with electronic drum and synth samples with live beat boxing and vocal loops.
Taking inspiration from the open tunings of blues guitarists like Skip James and applying them to the picking style of the likes of Jose Gonzales and Ben Howard, Mick molds his riffs into a delivery more associated with the post-rock of Mogwai. A trait of intense and sometimes abstract creativity can also be found in the self-made artwork that accompanies his various self-released online EPs, as well as for those around his local scene.
